A Story of Solo Travel with BikeHike

Trish and Carole at the BikeHike Office

Six years ago, Carole contacted us looking for a solo adventure in South America. We booked her on a group departure through Chile & Argentina with a couple of like-minded adventurers.

This summer, we met Carole in-person for the first time when she stopped by our office in Vancouver BC. She was on her way over to Smithers BC to visit Paula and Brett, who she had met on that South American BikeHike adventure and had continued to keep in touch with. It was such a nice surprise!

“Brett and I are excited to see Carole…she’s a great traveler and we can always count on her to visit us.”
